Sardine Die-off

Hosted by

An estimated one million fish apparently have swept ashore in Redondo Beach's King Harbor by abnormal currents on Tuesday. In the relatively small marina, scientists say their number exhausted the available oxygen in the water. Some 35 tons of dead fish have already been removed from the surface, but there's still a layer some two feet high lying on the bottom. Seth Lawrence, who lives on a boat in King Harbor, cares for the creatures at the Santa Monica Aquarium, which is run by Heal the Bay.
